Yes. I've never seen a Trombone. These threads with pictures is how I learn.

The top rifle is a 33xxx rifle and the bottom is a 140xxx rifle from near the end of production, I am partial to the 33xxx rifles because of the dark wood which I really like.

The top rifle is completely original and in very, very good shape with all matching serial numbers.

The bottom one is nice but if you look carefully (which I didn't) you can see that the rear sight is not original which was disappointing but such is life. While the seller described it as 'one of his very best Trombones" he was not correct as there is some blueing missing on the other side of the barrel; which he neglected to tell me about which I thought was dirty pool to say the least.

But having a Trombone arrive, for me, is like a cloudy day on Maui, it's still nice and on balance I have bought some rifles at below market value so I am reasonably happy.

Interestingly the later Trombones have black anodized (like) aluminium butt plates.

The two rifles are the same length; anything else is merely the angle of the shot.

You guys are KILLING me. I've only seen 1 Trombone (which I bought), and it was rusty, D/T for a Redfield sight and had been stored in a wet location, so the buttstock is cracked. Still and all, I love my Trombone. Need to shoot it more often, that's for certain!!!

Trombone Deluxe

I have 2 Trombones............ which happen to be consecutive serial numbers. One is a "Deluxe" version with upgraded wood. The other has the "Blonde" wood.
